This saddle fitting service covers assessing one horse for 60-75 minutes - please let us know if you need to book in more than one horse. Some saddle work may be able to be completed within this appointment, and Chris aims to re-pack on site where possible. Note that bookings at Seagrove Equestrian in Waiau Pa may mean we can book you in earlier than if we need to come to you.
Saddle fitter Chris Barnett has over 18 years training & experience and will:
Check / refit your existing saddles
Recommend / supply new saddle options as required
Quote any additional saddle work required to improve the fit on your horse.
Chris will try to work with your saddle where possible and will be able to suggest and carry out alterations to improve your saddle fit. Improving the fit of an existing saddle may include repacking, or a full strip out, changes to gullet size, and more.
Chris will give an indication of the cost for any saddle work at the time of your saddle fitting. Where possible repacking and saddle repair is done on site immediately. For more complex saddle work, Chris will offer to take your saddle and give you a completion date.

If you think your current saddle is unsuitable for your horse or you wish to view new saddles, let us know ahead of time and Chris can bring new saddle optionswith him, and fit your choice to your horse. He is also able to template on the day if you choose to move towards a custom made option.
We don’t sell or advise on second hand saddles as there are just too many factors that we can’t control, which can affect the quality of service we aspire to. We focus on the great quality brands we stock which can be expertly fitted to your horse by Chris.
